Hello everyone!
I am venturing into the world of fitness trackers and there are SO MANY to choose from. Can you please tell me what you like best?
Specifically for me I want a calorie counter and heart rate monitor for Indoor Cycling and Pure Barre.
I am not a fan of the Apple Watch, but your responses would be greatly appreciated!

    I have a Fitbit and I absolutely love it. I’ve had several variations of Fitbit, but the one I have now is the Inspire HR. It’s light, small, tracks sleep, heart rate, steps and automatically tracks exercise. I see my deficit for the week and it truly helps keep me on track.

    Garmin is the way to go. Especially if your indoor bike reports power.

    Which Garmin do you have?

    I think the Garmin. I had a FR935 which I use to track the vast majority of the activities I do, cycling indoors (with a power meter) included.

    I have a Fitbit Charge 3. Seems easy enough to use and the apps are great. I mostly got it because the Fitbit can use my phone's GPS and track my walks, runs etc.. My only gripe is that it seems to generate a pile of steps for me, so I don't use that part of it as I don't believe it's very accurate.

    Fenix 5X. It was the top of the line a generation ago. Probably two generations come spring.

    Ok. I think I’ve made my decision to go for the Garmin Vivosmart 4. But before I purchase, how do I record my Pure Barre activities?

    Polar V800 with heart strap. Everything you will ever need!

    I hated my Fitbit. I love my Garmin Vivoactive 3. T syncs better and give me much more data. I really like th3 Gps.

    Another vote for vivoactive. I love that I don't have to charge it daily. When I track my runs with gps it will last about 3 or 4 days. When I don't use GPS, It will last up to a week. Loads of useful data with the app.

    I wouldn't suggest tracking them on a sports watch. HR doesn't tell you anything of value in that kind of session, so all you're really recording is the time that you took.
